    Does anyone here reccomend oiling the springs in 1911 magazines?

    I don't. I think it just gives the dirt something to stick to. I just wipe mine down w/ the towel that I use when cleaning so there is some oil on it but not much. Some people will put their mags in boiling water and then let them dry out in order to get rid of all the "gunk" that they collect over time.

    Nope, perhaps a light coat of silicone to prevent corrosion if you are worried about that.
